Where did you get your sounds, and what do you use. I'd love to get those orchestra sounds, they sound amazing. Please tell me :D. However, other then that, I like the song. The orchestration is good in terms of melody and repitition of said melody. Also the second part is awesome sounding. The only problem I have with the modern drum beat is that it just doesn't seem to fit. Make the first drum beat, "bum-ta" more complex, perferably with cymbals, since the hat seems to be the thing that made it fit the best. I personally don't like the hat tamberine in this song, but that's up to you, I'd have rather heard a hi-hat. Also, make it longer, this song is absolutely amazing, and I'd like to hear more of it. Seriously, I love this song man. Now don't forget to tell me where you got those orchestra sounds so I can use them :D. Good song man 5/5 9/10 (-1 for being to short :P)
Hey! Thanks so much for the review -very encouraging...I'm an amatuer, and have no idea what I'm doing -seriously, I can't even read music..I do what I do by ear, and just make what 'sounds good' to me. I'll definitely keep in mind your suggestions, and I'd love to try implenting them, and making a longer, better version of this as soon as I get some time and inspiration.
The exact instruments I use are from East West Instruments (soundsonline.com I think), specifically East West Symphonic Orchestra Gold, and Stormdrum (don't think I used that one in this piece though). And I edit the sounds into music in FL Studio 9. But...East West Instruments are freaking expensive...you might look into 'Garriton Personal Orchestra', which is cheaper I think, and of comparable quality.
